New research tested whether bees can distinguish between even and odd numbers. After a training period where two different bee groups learned to identify between even and odd numbers with the help of sugar water, more than 70% of bees could rightfully distinguish them. Bees from the odd number group learned faster than the other group, showing that bees’ brains react better to odd numbers, contrary to humans.
